I honestly cannot get past how sweet this is. The flavor profile is excellent, but holy hell. Sugar bomb and a half

Pour at a tasting. Dark thick black body. Big Sweet aroma. Wow, huge big sweet chocolate taste. Tastes like a chocolate covered caramel. So good. After warming up a bit though, that big 19.2% alcohol burn starts to be noticeable.
